RACER - welcome to the future of productivity

With the machines of the new series RACER we set the world standard for free-arm embroidery machines. Developed and manufactured in Germany, this machine concept guarantees the shortest amortization times thanks to the highest embroidery speed. The multi-head embroidery machines impress with their extreme embroidery accuracy, flexible operating modes and proven longevity.



Tubular multi-head embroidery machines for special requirements.

For quantity orders, quickly changing motifs and special requirements, our ZSK multi-head embroidery machine is the perfect solution.

In the areas of promotion and advertising, corporate fashion, club wear and the individualization of textiles, the RACER leave nothing to be desired.

The RACER series is suitable for the processing of many different textiles. For example, embroider garments such as t-shirts, polo shirts, jackets, trousers, caps, gloves, socks or shoes. Many other products such as leather bags, name tags, logos, VIP ribbons, aprons, borders, towels or flags can also be designed with RACER machines.

Standard vs. Wide

ZSK offers the RACER Series with S (400mm) and W (495mm) head distance. The head distance describes the distance between the centre of two adjacent heads. The wide (495mm) head spacing is ideal for bulky products and large designs. Certain models are offered as L (large) models. These models offer a 700mm embroidery field depth when operating in the border frame mode.

Head Selection

The RACER Series can be equipped with Head Selection. This feature is of use when stitching very large designs like flags, bed sheets of table clothes. The digitizing software is used to assign each head different parts of the design or in case of borders to operate all heads at the same time. The system allows automatic control of which head is sewing which design feature and switches heads on and off automatically. When a head is switched off, the take up lever is not moving. Using the Quick text with Head Selection feature allows
work wear production with same designs and different names at ease.

Barcode Operation

A barcode reader can be connected via USB to the T8-2 control unit. The reader can be used to scan barcodes and to load designs. A new feature allows the operation of T8-2 features via barcodes. A design can be loaded, turned by 180° etc. without pressing a single button. Only for starting the embroidery process, pressing of the green button is required.
